A degree in Education is a dynamic and stimulating opportunity to study the individual, social, and political forces that shape education, in all its forms. If you are interested in how and why we learn, both formally and informally, in the UK or abroad, then studying Education will challenge and excite you in equal measure. Studying Education at Liverpool Hope will help you to develop academically, professionally, and personally. Our degree is structured around the four key disciplines of education: psychology, sociology, history, and philosophy. Throughout the course, you will engage with evidence and research, link theory to practice, and think more deeply about your own values and aspirations.
While studying Education at Liverpool Hope University, you will become a Hope Education Professional: inspired to put educational theory into practice, able to critically evaluate current policy, and willing to make a difference in the world. The Degree is an ideal foundation for those planning to go on to teacher training or further, at Liverpool Hope University or elsewhere, and for a variety of careers in education and related fields.
Our History degree gives you the opportunity to study a wide-range of historical periods and topics with elements in British, Irish, European and International History from the late medieval age to the twentieth century. By studying with us, you will engage with a wide variety of historical evidence throughout the whole of your degree programme. You will benefit from being taught by a team of recognised scholars and experts in their fields who are dedicated and experienced teachers and researchers and regular publishers of their research.
Throughout your degree, you will be able to take advantage of the rich library, archival, museum and heritage resources available in Liverpool and further afield, as well as benefit from our partnership with National Museums Liverpool. Working with the staff and resources of the many museums in Liverpool forms an important part of your learning experiences.
